How to Get Rid of Flying Squirrels

Flying squirrels might seem cute, but they can cause of a lot of problems if they are left un-monitored. You will be surprised at the damage they can do to your property or things within their reach. So, before they tend to cause problem you should get rid of them. Below we have some efficient and effective ways to get rid of the flying squirrels



Maintain your fences
It is very important that your trim your fences. Since these squirrels only get out in the dark and stay in their nest during the day, thus trimming of the fences will reduce their chances of creating nest there. But in case you have heavy bushes they will make their nests deep in the bushes where no light reaches them and once its night they will roam around on your property.

Trapping the flying squirrel
The second thing that you can do in order to get rid of the flying squirrels is that you put a trap in places where you have spotted them. In worse cases, you might even have to put multiple traps in order to get rid of them. Once you have captured them, you should leave them in a place that is far away from your area. By doing this, you will make sure that they never return to your place.

Exclusion and Repellents
Repellents should be your last method of getting rid of these cute little animals. They might cause some damage, but they are not harmful. So, rather than killing them using repellents we suggest your trap them and leave them far away. However, if trapping isn’t helping, you can also opt for the repellents.

If you think there are flying squirrels in your ceiling, trust us you are wrong. There must of a whole colony of flying squirrels live there. They tend to live in colonies and once they find a safe and nice place to live in they tend to invite friends, families and acquaintance to come and live with them.

Once you have figured this out, the rest is really easy. The second step is to install a trap near the entry point and wait for your prey.
